North Carolina indie folk group Bowerbirds have been on the scene since 2006. Made up of Phiilp Moore (vocals/ guitar), Beth Tacular (accordion/vocals), and Mark Paulson (violin/vocals), they have cut out a niche for themselves with their sweeping sounds and harmonies. Their third full length album, The Clearing (which sounds like the habitat for actual bowerbirds), has that same sound many have become accustomed to hearing.
“Sweet Moment,” one of the singles, just got the video treatment as the band released a clip to accompany the song yesterday. The video shows a pair of youngish lovers being separated when she moves away with her family. But the woman scampers away to reunite with her man and they go on a road trip. Towards the end, the “Sweet Moment” title has literal meaning, and the beautiful track makes the entire video a pleasure to watch. Check it out below:
Bowerbirds only has a couple tour dates remaining in the United States. This Saturday they will be playing the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn before heading to Europe. Then they return to Oregon for Pickerfest August 3 and 4 and Chicago for Lollapalooza August 5 before again crossing the pond.
